In this story, a boy named Rob is the owner of a cow. Every morning, he goes outside to milk the cow; however, one morning, the cow announces that she is bored with her life, and she will not give Rob any milk until she has some adventure in her life. But not just any adventure, the cow wants to go to the moon. This is impossible, so Rob takes her out to a ton of places where cows are never allowed to go. The cow, however, is stubborn and insists on going to the moon. Rob had to pick his creative mind to figure something out, so he took her to a museum where there is a giant model of the moon that the cow could stand on. I like this book because it teaches the children that although some desires or ambitions seem out of reach, there is always something you can do—nothing is impossible if you are creative. I would ask the students what they would have done in this situation and write their own ending to the story. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0517885409, Paperback)

Illus. in full color. "In this hilarious tale, Rob comes out one morning to find that his cow Martha is 'udderly' bored with her life. 'It's eat grass, get milked. Eat grass, get milked.' Martha wants more. In fact, she wants to walk on the moon. Teague's ebullient artwork captures a very determined cow in a variety of decidedly uncowlike settings and he illustrates them all with humor and panache. Although the story-hour set will get most of the jokes, slightly older children will be the most amused."--Booklist.

Martha the cow refuses to give milk until she can visit the moon like her great-great-grandmother before her, the Cow Who Jumped Over the Moon.
